The public is invited to the second community meeting to provide input on the redesign of Observer Highway. The meeting will take place on Thursday, March 3rd from 6-8pm in the conference room in the basement of City Hall, 94 Washington Street.

The City of Hoboken has $2 million in federal funding to improve Observer Highway which was secured by Senator Robert Menendez.

�With this funding, we have an opportunity to transform Observer Highway into �Observer Boulevard� and create a more welcoming gateway to our City and a safer street for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians,� said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

On August 17th, 2010, the first �Observer Highway Safety Re-Design Community Workshop� was held where the public provided input on the redesign for Observer Highway. Based on that feedback, engineers and planners have developed three alternative designs which will be presented for additional public input at the upcoming meeting.
